Well, at least it won't be powder dry like it was when we were there in October 2005.

I can tell you that, while we've had some veeerrrrrrrrry wet weather here in the past 4 days, ABC Campground and Branson have not been negatively affected by the weather. We've had lots of lightening and thunder, and buckets of rain, especially last night. However, we went to 3 shows today without umbrellas or jackets. The temps have been in the mid-70's to low 80's, with light sprinkles during the day.

Ya'll should have nice weather for the rally... unfortunately, due to other plans we'll be about 800 miles north of you by those dates. We will attest that ABC is the "best campground" we've ever stayed in. Enjoy.

Thanks Paul, glad to hear we won't have to trade in our golf carts for row boats.

I wonder if the weather forecasters are aware that I washed the 5th wheel yesterday???

It's been raining here for over 2 weeks!

Rusty, we are almost 2 weeks yet until we leave. You being a native Texan should know that in two weeks (shoot one day is enough) and the weather can change drastically. We may have two or three hail storms, a tornado or two and maybe even some snow (not likely).

I'm waiting until a day or two before launch before I scrub the exterior again.

We need to run the rain out of Branson so it can dry out before we get there.

Ken,

The only reason I washed it yesterday is because it will be in covered storage until we pull out for Branson on the 13th.

Heck, I'd take some "Texas variety" in the weather right now instead of this depressing rain, rain, rain.

Rusty

I have no idea of our total rain fall for the year so far, but last night we had 2 inches and it still sort of oozing.

The good news is we are starting to dry out The local streams, low water crossings and rivers are getting back to normal with no "big time rain forcasted. You can go to KY3.com to check current conditions.

See you all in Branson.

I wonder if the weather forecasters are aware that I washed the TT today. Yesterday we got about 1/2 inch of rain (what ever that is have not seen any for so long I forgot what it looks like) this is the most we have had at one time for almost 2 month. We are about 14 inchs behind avg. I think you two said this whould make it RAIN. Mabe you can send some this way.

Tom,

Based on my long-standing experience, if you want rain, just go hitch up your RV. This works for me all the time!

Seems the Boomers always manage to attract high winds, hail and tornadoes...especialy if the Okie bunch show up.
